The unique luxury bike designed by Finnish F1 legend Mika Häkkinen features a stylish and bold design combined with Verge’s unique technology: “This bike is a testament to a life lived to the fullest!”
World-famous F1 legend and two-time World Champion Mika Häkkinen has designed the signature model of a new electric superbike in collaboration with Verge Motorcycles, the electric superbike pioneer. Just one hundred signature models will be produced, making it an extremely exclusive rarity.
“I know from experience what it takes to develop a vehicle that embodies speed, precision and elegance. I wanted to design the bike right down to the smallest detail rather than just picking the colour. Each bike is numbered and features an exclusive signature. This electric superbike represents the future of riding and is a testament to a life lived to the fullest!” says Mika Häkkinen.
Mika Häkkinen and Verge Motorcycles teamed up at the beginning of the year, when Häkkinen was appointed to the company’s Advisory Board. Häkkinen is also one of the investors in Verge Motorcycles. The signature model that Häkkinen and Verge have designed together demonstrates the best of two leading players in their field.
“We are extremely proud to have F1 legend Mika Häkkinen design the signature model. He is one of the greatest drivers of all time, and breaking boundaries and enjoying the thrill of speed is something that we very much share in common,” says Tuomo Lehtimäki, CEO of Verge Motorcycles.
State-of-the-art features combined with a unique and stylish design
The luxury superbike designed with Mika Häkkinen combines a stylish and bold design with Verge’s unique technologies. Perfected down to the last detail, the model represents the most powerful and advanced electric superbike on the market with a range of 350 kilometres and a fast-charging time of just 35 minutes. In addition, it features an integrated rim motor inside the rear wheel, which is a patented and internationally awarded innovation developed by Verge.
The bike is made of the highest quality materials on the market, making the final product truly unique. For example, it has carbon fibre fairings and a unique ceramic surface treatment that protects against scratches. Full black shock absorbers and details combined with dark grey and silver surface elements complete the powerful and elegant look.
The unique superbike designed by Mika Häkkinen is available for purchase as of today via the Verge Motorcycles online store in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Estonia and Monaco. It can also be purchased from the new Verge Motorcycles flagship store in Monaco, which will open in connection with the Monaco GP and is also the electric superbike manufacturer’s first physical shop and showroom. The retail price of the bike without taxes is 80,000 euros.
